Qualifying went again very average as i went out on used supersofts on my second run, i didn't want to destroy them so abandoned the lap so it would benefit in the race (doing the 1 stop).
Had a good start and was going 3 wide into turn 1 but backed out of it, gained like 2 positions because people spun.
Made a few good overtakes on people and i believe twice on @AOR Charlie, the 1 stop paid off but unfortunately i had too much traffic and lost some time to @IS Vandoorne managed to close to gap to 2.2 secs in the end and hoped for him to have a penalty. I think i showed great pace again but next time i hope to do better in qualy so i don't start with time and positions to make up!

My race was interesting to say the least.
Quali: P4. Not entirely happy with my lap as I had a couple tenths in the bag during practice which I didn't put out when it mattered.
Race: lap 1, pretty standard, bunched up and lost a few positions from the outside of the Constantina effect, not much I could do. Lap 2 at the hairpin I hit my teammate giving me the smallest damage you could see, but it was enough to screw me over in the fast corners. So I pitted lap 6. Then went to the end on Softs battling with @TheGiant19 didnt help my tyre wear, but it was fun.
On to china where hopefully I can have a nice and calm race.

Disconnected and my backup invite disappeared. @AOR Charlie jinxed it when he jokingly asked do I not trust his connection when I asked him for the back up invite then It actually happened lol. Fairly annoyed but can't really do anything about it hopefully everything will be alright next race.

I will take full responsibility for the backup invite situation, I completely forgot to send out backups before we started, really sorry about that

I dunno if you were in the party chat but I did send a message to it saying can someone send me and everyone one, but I got one from charlie anyway but It just disappeared so don't worry about it not anyone's fault. But yeah send one next race (y)

Q-P3. Second run second lap was good and I was very happy. Just the tyres after 2 q laps was quite bad.
R-P7. The first part of the race was catastrophic... I was in P4 but I had some serious guys on the back and I was very struggling with my rear tyres. I was sliding, the pace was bad so I decided to make an early stop on lap 7 for guys in the back not to have a possibility to undercut me. Yep it worked :) @AOR Charlie went early also but on softs and @BosslyGaming after pit came behind me (worked). So I was running P3 and after small mistake I had to give the possition back to @BosslyGaming . I was on 5-5 wings so I had no chance to overtake him even with DRS. So the plan was to save fuel, tyres and wait for his mistake or attack at the end. But.... I had a spin and had no chance to catch him and also few laps later I had another spin... P7...
